A Company that Measures Itself by Core Values
Senior Epic Ambulatory Analyst - Contractor (Current Employee) – Everett, WA – April 13, 2014
It's no wonder that 3 of the lat 4 years the company was high on Fortune 500's "100 Best Companies to Work For". It's a physician-owned company that strives to make employees feel like family.
What I like about my experience there as an Epic Ambulatory software analyst is having the ability to learn and troubleshoot all aspects of the application. My skill range is much broader than analysts I have met at other organizations because they are more siloed and layered elsewhere.
Senior analysts are expected to do first line troubleshooting, not third tier. Senior analysts work with end users and workflows as well.
The analysts are also the ones who do complicated imports (IMO, SNOMED) as well as Data Courier all build, rather than submit to DBA's.
These are tough years for the healthcare industry. Working as a contractor, I was not surprised to see the cutbacks when the deadline to ICD-10 implementation was extended, but view it as an opportunity to find new opportunities to learn new things. When The Everett Clinic has the ability to hire a new FTE, I certainly plan to have my name on the list of candidates.
